As pointed out by Mike Connor, the A&A RR abondoned its N Java to Attica
section in 1957. It was the result of a flood and washout on January 23,
1957. Attached is an excerpt from the book "Arcade & Attica R.R." by Ed
Lewis, published in 1966. Inluded is an interesting paragraph on its service
to Attica State Prison.
